If default orientation does not match your installation, there are two options:
Get Orientations – Use this button if ECU-S1 is not in orientation shown in diagram and ECU-S1 is at a
90° angle or some multiple of 90° (0°, 90°, 180°, 270°) at all three axes (vertically, horizontally, and
perpendicular to other two) when compared to direction of travel of vehicle.
Enter Angles – Use this button if ECU-S1 orientation is not shown and it is not mounted at a 90° angle
to direction of travel. This is only used when custom angles must be entered. Contact your AutoSteer
Dealer for assistance in entering correct angles.

Get Orientations
When Get Orientations button is pressed,
system is expecting that the ECU-S1 is
installed in one of 24 possible orientations.
To simplify selection, system will use built
in sensors to detect which way gravity is
pulling on the ECU-S1. This allows system
to narrow choice of orientations down to
four.
Note: If the ECU-S1 is not mounted orthogonally and this choice is used, system will not be able to
properly show correct orientation. If an orientation is selected that is not exactly the way it is mounted
on the vehicle, steering performance will be poor or not possible.
Cycle View – This button cycles through four possible orientations that are detected by ECUS1. Press this button until the figure on left side of screen shows ECU-S1 in same orientation
as it is installed. When correct orientation is found, press
to save orientation and to
continue to next step.
Start Over – If none of the orientations match, press the Start Over button to return settings back to
default position. This will return back to beginning of ECU-S1 Orientation selection.
Enter Angles
When Enter Angles button is pressed,
system will show a warning screen about
how important it is to enter values
accurately.
Press

Note: Only properly trained technicians should use this option. Angles need to be precisely
measured and calculated to allow system to work properly. Entering incorrect values will cause
system to perform poorly. Always attempt to mount the ECU-S1 at 90° angles if possible. Always
contact your AutoSteer Dealer for assistance when entering correct angles.

STEERCOMMAND
VEHICLE TAB
Once Warning screen has been accepted,
system expects user to enter custom
angles to tell system how ECU-S1 is
mounted. These angles must be accurate.
There are three angles that need to be
entered.
(X) Pitch – Rront to back rotation of ECUS1 as compared to vehicle.
(Y) Roll – Side to side rotation of ECU-S1
as compared to vehicle.
(Z) Yaw – Rotation of ECU-S1 compared
to vehicle looking down from top.
To determine angles to enter, start with a ECU-S1 with a rotational settings of (X=0, Y=0, Z=0). This
orientation is with ECU-S1 upside down with connectors pointing to left side of vehicle. This is the Base
Orientation Position which all rotations need to be measured from.
Note: Figure shows ECU-S1 upside down with connectors pointing to left side of vehicle. This is the
Base Orientation that all angle measurements are measured from. X and Y arrows are not printed
on this side of ECU-S1 and are shown only as a reference.
Adjust angles for X, Y, and Z so that they tell the system how
many degrees it must be rotated from Base Orientation
Position to match actual orientation on vehicle. This process
should only performed by someone that has had proper
training. Contact your AutoSteer dealer for support.
Besides entering angles, you have one other option:
• Start Over – Press this button to return settings back to
default position of vehicle profile selected. This will return
the screen back.

Manual Steering Override
Manual Steering Override refers to sensor that is used to detect when operator manually turns steering
wheel. AutoSteer system needs to know when to stop AutoSteering when driver wants to take over
steering manually. AutoSteer system can detect this by getting a signal from a pressure transducer, flow
switch, steering encoder, electrical resistance, or other method.
Manual Steering Override screen shows status of that sensor and allows user to adjust sensitivity of
sensor. Exact screens depend on vehicle profile detected.
Note: Note: It is critically important for Manual Steering Override to be functioning and set to proper level to
allow user to disengage AutoSteer manually. Never operate an AutoSteer system without this feature working
or set properly.

Pressure Transducer
This screen is displayed for vehicle profiles
that use a pressure transducer on Steering
Valve. It allows the user to adjust autosteer
kickout sensitivity and verify sensor is
functioning properly.
Information and controls available on Manual Steering Override screen for pressure transducers:
Pressure Graph – Current pressure populates as shaded green area starting from left side of graph,
kick out pressure is shown by triangles on bottom and top.
Saved – Value that is currently saved for manual kickout.
Current – Pressure reading determined by pressure transducer.
Minus (-) and Plus (+) Buttons – Increases or decreases setting for kick out pressure. This moves two
triangles left or right on graph to manually adjust kick out pressure value.
Save Limit – If kick out pressure values are changed from saved values, press this button to save them.
If they are not saved, any changes will be lost when user leaves this screen.
Autocal – Auto Calibration wizard for pressure transducer. This is generally the best way to set up
Manual Steering Override value. It may be necessary to manually adjust this kick out value after Autocal
wizard to take into account vehicle specific behavior. Always test kick out in AutoSteer mode to
determine if it working properly.
Change Samples – Number of times system must detect kick out reading in a row before it considers
that user has started turning wheel. If this value is set too high, kick out will be slow to happen or not
happen at all. If this value is set too low, vehicle may spontaneously kick out from random pressure
spikes. This value should be left at default value and kick out limit adjusted first. Modify this value only if
kick out limit is unable to provide a good balance.
Start – Places system into an AutoSteer simulation. This will change to a Stop button after calibration
start. Test kick out setting by turning steering wheel. If system reaches kick out pressure the stop button
will change back to a start button. Use this procedure to test system and ensure kick out works properly.

Flow Switch and Encoder Auto Calibrate
Some vehicle profiles use an encoder on the
steering wheel to detect motion at steering
wheel or a flow switch to detect change in
flow in the steering hydraulic lines. Encoders
will send a signal when the steering wheel is
turned by user. Flow switches will send a
signal when it detects oil flow through a
hydraulic line. In either case, there are only
two states, on and off so there is no
adjustment required for these sensors.
Information provided in this screen is:
Manual Steering Override – A green light
indicates AutoSteer system is detecting
steering wheel motion or flow at flow switch.
A red light indicates no motion or flow is
detected.
MDU-G4 Auto Calibrate
Manual steering override when using the
MDU-G4 as the actuator is different than

Auto Calibrate wizard provides specific instructions about required area, speed, and engine RPM during
each step of the process. Calibration steps and time vary according to vehicle type and equipment
installed. Follow onscreen instructions to perform Auto Calibration procedure.
Calibration process can be broken into two areas:
Common Calibration Steps – These are steps that all vehicles must perform during Auto Calibrate
wizard.
Vehicle Type Specific Calibration Steps – Once Common Calibration Steps have been completed,
Auto Calibrate wizard will go on to different steps depending on which vehicle type has been selected.
Calibration routine for Valve / Steer-by-Wire, and CAN Bus / ISO Controllers are different. Procedures
for different types will be discussed later.
To start Auto Calibrate wizard, press Auto Calibrate button from AutoSteer Setup screen. Initial Auto
Calibrate screen is displayed. This screen will be different depending on which vehicle type is being
calibrated. Screen will summarize all steps required to complete calibration and provide an approximate
amount of time each step will take.
Note: All of steps of routine must be completed and changes saved before system is allowed to AutoSteer
vehicle.
COMMON CALIBRATION STEPS
All three Auto Calibrate wizard processes will start with same Common Calibration Steps. They are as
follows:
Compass Calibration – Calibrates ECU-S1 electronic compass.
Wait For Heading – Step to verify that compass and heading calculation are equal.
Tilt Zero Initial Direction – Initial step for calibrating terrain compensation sensors.
Tilt Zero Opposite Direction – Second step for calibrating terrain compensation sensors.
Note: Auto Calibrate procedure requires a significant amount of space. Find an adequate location before
starting Auto Calibration process.
To start Auto Calibrate process, press
in Auto Calibrate screen.
Compass Calibration
Control Unit has a built in compass that allows it to determine the heading vehicle is facing. The
compass needs to be calibrated against heading through the compass calibration. For this step, operator
must drive vehicle in a circle, at a constant speed, to allow system to compare compass readings with
GPS heading.
Ag Leader PN 2006241-ENG Rev. B
25
VEHICLE TAB
Note: Auto Calibrate wizard takes a significant amount of space for your vehicle to operate within. Depending
upon vehicle size, it may take up to 4.0 acres [approximately 300 x 600 ft] (1.6 ha [approximately 90 x 180
meters]) to complete Auto Calibrate procedure.
To successfully calibrate compass, start driving vehicle 1/2-2 mph (0.8-3.2 k/h). Turn steering wheel and
hold it at a constant angle so vehicle will make a constant radius circle. Steer vehicle so it makes a circle
around 30-50 ft (9.1-15.2 m) in diameter. When vehicle is moving at correct speed and in a circle, press
to start calibration. Continue driving in a circle until compass calibrates and the Waiting for
Heading screen appears.
Note: In order to increase integrity of Compass Calibration, driver must hold steering wheel at a constant
angle and keep vehicle at a constant speed. Do not start calibration process until vehicle is in this constant arc.
Note: Pressing Pause button and then pressing Resume button will restart Compass Calibration from
beginning. Do not press Pause button unless vehicle is going to cause an accident.
When Compass Calibration steps have completed, system will automatically move on to next step.
Wait For Heading
After compass has been calibrated, system will display a verification screen. This screen shows a
compass with a red needle and a green shaded area. Red needle represents calculated heading based
on GPS. Green shaded area represents measured compass heading. If calibration was successful, the
red needle and shaded green area should be pointing the same direction.
1. Start driving in a straight line at 5 mph (8 k/h).
Observe red needle and green shaded area.
Both should line up within a few seconds.
2. When vehicle has reached minimum speed,
verification process will begin and display will
show system is WARMING UP. Continue driving
in a straight line.
Compass Verification Warming Up
3. If calibration was successful and there are no
problems, system should quickly show arrow and
shaded area aligned and pointing in direction
vehicle is traveling.
4. At this point, press Green Next button to
continue with the next step of the calibration.
5. Compass Calibration Successful

STEERCOMMAND
Tilt Zero
System uses its sensors to determine tilt of vehicle as it travels through the field. This allows system to
calculate true position if the cab is tilting to one side or another. If tilt of vehicle is not accurately
measured, system will not be able to autosteer the vehicle accurately.
Tilt calibration is a two step process.
1. Vehicle must be parked on a flat area and left to sit. System then averages sensor readings for a short
time to get a base line.
2. Vehicle must then be driven and turned around to face opposite direction and stopped at exact same
spot. System then averages sensor reading while faced in other direction.
System is now able to use two readings to zero out slight tilt errors of gyros.
Initial Direction
Note: It is important that Tilt Calibration takes place on a flat area with no slope. If this step is performed on
a slope, system may not be able to accurately control vehicle.
To start Tilt Zero Initial Direction calibration, drive vehicle onto a flat surface and put in park or set park
brake. Press Resume button and wait for system to finish this step. When this step is complete,
calibration process will automatically move on to next step.
Opposite Direction
This is second stage of this calibration procedure.
Note: It is important that vehicle is positioned in exact same place as previous step but facing in opposite
direction. If vehicle is not placed in same position, tilt compensation will be incorrectly calculated and vehicle
steering performance will be degraded.
To finish Tilt Calibration, turn vehicle around and park in exact same location so that rear tires are now
over marks of front tires (center of track is at same point but in opposite direction). Press the Resume
button and wait for system to finish measuring.
System will then automatically jump to the next step. This is the end of Common Calibration Steps.
VEHICLE TYPE SPECIFIC CALIBRATION STEPS
Depending on vehicle type, Auto Calibrate wizard will move to one of three different procedures to
calibrate remaining sensors. Follow procedure for vehicle type that system is being installed on.
Valve / Steer-by-Wire
This vehicle type has a steering valve that is controlled directly by system. This includes vehicles that
use standard AutoSteer valves, AutoTrac Ready (non ISO), AccuGuide Ready, IntelliSteer, and others.
There are three steps to finish calibration process.
Valve Deadband – Determines valve’s deadband or minimum signal that must be sent to start oil flow.
Angle Sensor – Calibrates Angle Sensor on steering axle.
Ag Leader PN 2006241-ENG Rev. B
27
VEHICLE TAB
Note: If red needle and green shaded area do not line up within a minute after WARMING UP stage begins,
Navigate to Edit Vehicle screens and verify that Control Unit has been set to correct orientation. If orientation
has been set incorrectly, system will not be able to accurately determine a heading. Drive vehicle forward for
500 feet (152 meters) and then restart calibration.
Valve – Calibrates hydraulic valve.
Next step of calibration process should start automatically from Common Calibration Steps.
Note: Verify that engine RPM is at working speed while this part of calibration is taking place.
Valve Deadband
Oil flow is proportional to voltage or pulse
width signal changes sent from control unit.
It takes a certain minimum amount of signal
to start oil flow through valve. If signal is
below that minimum amount, no oil flows
and steering axle will not move. Voltages or
pulse widths where there is no valve
movement is called Deadband. Deadband
is detected by incrementally increasing
signal sent to valve in both directions until
Control Unit detects motion from Wheel
Angle Sensor.
To begin Valve Deadband calibration, drive vehicle in a straight line between 2.0 and 5.0 mph (3.2 and
8.0 k/h) and then press Resume button to start calibration process. Vehicle will continue to drive in a
straight line for a time. Eventually, steering axle will begin to move to both sides. Once this happens
system will have determined deadband for valve and move on to next step.
Angle Sensor
Control Unit reads value of Angle Sensor to determine position of steering. During calibration process,
Control Unit holds Angle Sensor at different positions from full left to full right and measures actual
change of heading at each position using the GPS antenna. At the conclusion of calibration, Control Unit
can determine expected change of heading for any Angle Sensor position. It is also able to determine
exact Angle Sensor reading that should steer vehicle in a straight line.
Note: For next step in calibration process, vehicle will turn full left and full right. Make sure all objects are clear
of area where calibration is taking place.
Angle Sensor calibration should start automatically once Valve Deadband has been determined. If it
does not, press Resume button to start calibration process. Steering axle will make a hard turn to one
direction and then back to opposite direction to find maximum Angle Sensor stops. System will then
reposition Angle Sensor at regularly spaced increments between two maximum positions and measure
change of heading at each position. System will work from one direction, making increasingly less sharp
turns, then continue past straight ahead position, and then start making increasing sharp turns in
opposite direction. It will then repeat process in opposite direction. Once this is completed, calibration
process will move on to next step.
28
STEERCOMMAND
VEHICLE TAB
Valve
Valve calibration measures rate of turn
using Angle Sensor when a signal
command is sent to Steering Valve. As
signal to valve is increased, rate of turn at
Angle Sensor increases. Control Unit takes
readings of Angle Sensor rate of turn at
different signal commands so system
knows how fast vehicle will turn at any
signal command sent to Steering Valve.
Valve calibration should start automatically once Angle Sensor calibration has finished. If not, press
Resume button to start calibration process. First step of this calibration procedure will be to determine
maximum rate that steering axle can be turned using Steering Valve. System will command vehicle to
turn steering axle to one direction at maximum signal and then to opposite direction at maximum signal.
It repeats this process two more times.
System will then start turning steering axle slowly in both directions and measure speed at which it turns.
It will regularly increase speed at which it turns steering axle until it reaches maximum turning rate it
measured at first part of this test. At conclusion of calibration step, system will be able to know how fast
it will turn steering axle at any signal strength it sends to Steering Valve. When this step is complete,
calibration procedure is complete.
Once Valve calibration process has completed, Save Calibration screen will appear.

is pressed, calibration will have to be restarted from beginning.
Mechanical Steering Unit
Vehicle types that use a mechanical device attached to steering wheel to control direction vehicle steers
are calibrated with this procedure. Almost any vehicle can be fitted with a mechanical steering unit. ECUS1 must detect minimum current that is required to start turning steering wheel as final step of calibration
process. This step will perform a series of left and right turns a differing turning rates.
MDU-G4 Deadband – This step determines minimum current required to start turning steering wheel to
the right and to the left.
Note: Verify that engine RPM is at working speed while this part of calibration is taking place.
First part of test measures minimum current required to start turning steering wheel to right and to left.
To begin calibration, start driving vehicle in a straight line between 2.0 and 5.0 mph (3.2 and 8.0 k/h).
Press Resume button to begin calibration process.
Calibration process will perform a series of left and right turns at various rates of speed.

to accept and save
to discard all

beginning.
CAN Bus / ISO Controllers
Vehicle types that provide a CAN Bus or ISO Bus connection on machine to receive steering commands
from the vehicle’s steering controller are calibrated with this procedure. These vehicles have an angle
sensor and steering valve from the factory. These two components must be calibrated by vehicle
manufacture so that vehicle can accurately determine curvature it will travel at various angle sensor
readings. Vehicle’s steering valve adjusts position of steering axle to get a desired curvature
independently of system.
To control these vehicles, system sends a desired curvature command to vehicle via CAN Bus. Vehicle
then attempts to adjust valve to match desired curvature. There can be some error to what vehicle thinks
curvature is as compared to what it actually is. This calibration step compares estimated curvature
vehicle thinks it is using to actual curvature calculated by GPS system. There is only one step to finish
calibration.
Curvature – This step compares estimated curvature from vehicle to true curvature as measured by
GPS.
Next step of calibration process should start automatically from Common Calibration Steps.
Note: Verify that engine RPM is at working speed while this part of calibration is taking place.
Curvature
System sends various curvature
commands to vehicle. Vehicle then steers
to those curvature values. System then
measures what actual curvature is using
GPS antenna. To begin calibration step,
start driving vehicle in a straight line
between 2.0 and 5.0 mph (3.2 and 8.0 k/h)
and press Resume button to begin
calibration process.

Vehicle will start by driving in a straight line for a short time, it will then start making increasingly sharp
turns to the right until eventually it reaches the maximum right turn. It will then go back to center and then

maximum left turn, calibration will be complete.
Once Curvature calibration process has completed, Save Calibration screen will appear.

is pressed, calibration will have to be restarted from beginning.
ADJUST ANTENNA LATERAL OFFSET
After vehicle has been created and calibrated, perform following procedure to ensure that lateral offset is
entered correctly. This procedure will detect and eliminate skips and overlaps in adjacent rows due to an
incorrect lateral offset.
Note: Before calibration process was started, Antenna Lateral Offset value should be as close to 0 as
possible. If value is off by more than 4.0 inches (10.2 cm), calibration process will have to be redone after
changing this value.
Note: Always verify that implement selected on the display during this test on display has a zero offset even
if there is no implement on back of vehicle. Any vehicle offsets will cause an incorrect measurement to be
entered in this procedure.
Set an AB line, engage AutoSteering, and let vehicle AutoSteer for at least 100.0 feet (30.5 m).
Stop vehicle, place it in park, and disengage system.
Use a plumb bob to place a flag in ground directly beneath center of draw bar.
Return to vehicle, start system, and engage AutoSteer for at least another 100.0 feet (30.5 m) on same
AB line.
Disengage AutoSteer, turn vehicle around, and Auto Steer back down same AB line in the opposite
direction.
When vehicle's draw bar reaches the flag, stop vehicle, place it in park, disengage autosteer system,
and exit vehicle.
Check to see if center of draw bar is over flag.
If flag is exactly beneath center of draw bar, no adjustment is needed.
If not, use a plumb bob to mark a spot directly beneath the draw bar, and then measure the distance
between that spot and the previously placed flag.
Calculate Offset Error by dividing measured distance by 2. (measurement is divided by two because
taking measurements driving in opposite directions doubles any error.)

VEHICLE TAB
Note: Some CAN Bus / ISO Controlled vehicles require user to use vehicle’s factory supplied engage switch
to start calibration process. If this is required, calibration screen will notify user to use that device instead of
pressing Resume or Resume button on screen.
From AutoSteer Setup Vehicle screen, go to Manage Vehicle > Edit >Antenna Lateral Offset screen.
Adjust existing value by adding or subtracting Offset Error.
Note: This measurement may require that Left or Right button may have to be changed.
Repeat procedure to ensure that lateral offset is now correct using a new A/B line for both directions.
Note: Always make sure draw bar is centered on vehicle and measure from this point for this test. This is
point where implement will be attached and thus be expected to repeat in same point in both directions. If
wheels of vehicle are equally spaced from draw bar, they should pass over top of each other in opposite
directions in this test. However this measurement must be confirmed prior to using wheel tracks for offset
measurements. Measuring from draw bar will always provide most consistent results.
Example:
After AutoSteering up and down AB line, if it is found that the center of draw bar is 3.0 inches (7.6 cm) to
the right of the flag. Divide measurement by 2 for the number of passes, which gives an adjustment of
1.5 inches (3.8 cm). Go to Edit Antenna Lateral Offset screen and adjust lateral offset 1.5 inches (3.8
cm) inches to right (adjustment must be made in same direction of error).
Note: If adjustment is more than 4.0 inches (5.2 cm), vehicle will have to be recalibrated.
Note: Once Vehicle Antenna Offset has been determined, this value should NEVER need to be changed
again unless GPS antenna has been physically repositioned on roof of vehicle. If a field operation shows a
guess row error with a certain implement, offset should be adjusted on implement settings, NOT vehicle offset.
Changing Vehicle Offset will cause other implements to show unpredictable guess row errors.

easily transfer all vehicle profiles to all ECU-S1 units in fleet.
Importing and exporting vehicles have following limitations:
• ECU-S1 you export from and ECU-S1 you import into must be running same firmware version.
• Only one vehicle can be imported and exported at a time from Manage Vehicle screen.
If there are multiple vehicles with same name on different ECU-S1s, copying vehicle profiles from one
ECU-S1s to next may overwrite data. Each vehicle must have a unique name so data is kept separate
when copying vehicles from ECU-S1 to ECU-S1.
For example if a customer has three JD8430 vehicles, each JD8430 must have a different name such as
JD8430 1, JD8430 2, and JD8430 3. This limitation needs to be considered prior to creating a vehicle as
name of vehicle in ECU-S1 cannot be changed after it has been created. To rename vehicle, user must
create a new vehicle with desired name and recalibrate it.

STEERING ADJUST
After vehicle has been calibrated, it should perform
adequately for most normal field operations.
However in some situations, it may be necessary to
adjust steering performance to take into account
field conditions, implement selection, traveling
speed, etc. Steering Adjust screen enables user to
adjust vehicle steering performance to match these
changing conditions. You can change response of
selected item by using slider bar.
To access Steering Adjust screens, press Steering
Adjust button on AutoSteer Setup Vehicle screen.
Steering Adjust screen has following items that can be adjusted:
Steering Response – Adjusts for oscillations of vehicle when it is on desired path.
Line Acquisition – Adjusts how aggressively vehicle steers onto desired steering path (A/B line). The
goal is to tune system to take shortest route without excessively sharp or sudden movements of vehicle.
Cross-Track Error – Adjusts how aggressively vehicle reacts to changes in cross-track error.
Heading aggressiveness – Adjusts how aggressively vehicle reacts to changes in vehicles heading.
Reverse Response – Adjusts steering aggressiveness when vehicle is traveling in reverse.
Motor Response – Adjusts how aggressively the MDU motor turns the steering wheel.
Each item on Steering Adjust screen allows user to alter AutoSteering performance by allowing minor
adjustments to control system. Item selected from list on right can be changed by moving slide bar
using:
Moves bar towards turtle to slow response rate of steering system and makes slower smoother
turns. If this value is moved too far to left, vehicle will get into a slow weaving pattern as it
travels across field.
Moves bar towards rabbit to increase response rate of steering system. This causes system to
react faster, however if value is moved too far to right, vehicle will get into a rapid oscillating
pattern as it travels across field.
Press to make adjustments.
Move to increase/decrease response.
Directly select response rate to be adjusted.
STEERING COMPONENTS

To access Steering Components screen, press Steering Components button from AutoSteer Setup
Vehicle screen.
ECU
Internal Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is interface between Control Unit and all sensors and actuators on
vehicle. Electronic Control Unit receives information from all sensors such as Angle Sensor, pressure
transducer, steering encoder, etc. and sends electrical signals to hydraulic valve.
ECU screen provides following information:
Firmware Version – Version of software loaded on ECU.
Vehicle Type – Vehicle type ECU is configured for, important to know to ensure ECU is configured
properly to communicate to vehicle type selected.
Bootloader Version – Version of software that is loaded on ECU to allow it to boot up
Serial Number – Serial Number of internal ECU.
Manual Steering Override – A green light indicates AutoSteer system is detecting steering wheel
motion or flow at flow switch. A red light indicates no motion or flow is detected.
Communication – If this light is green, system is communicating with ECU. If this light is not green,
there is a problem with the Control Unit.
MANUAL STEERING OVERRIDE
Manual Steering Override refers to sensor that is used to detect when operator manually turns steering
wheel. AutoSteer system needs to know when to stop AutoSteering when driver wants to take over
steering manually. AutoSteer system can detect this by getting a signal from a pressure transducer, flow
switch, steering encoder, electrical resistance, or other method. Manual Steering Override screen shows
status of that sensor and allows user to adjust sensitivity of sensor.
Screen depends on vehicle profile detected. Refer to section that corresponds to sensor used for vehicle
profile being used. See “Manual Steering Override Auto Calibrate” on page 23 for more information.
Note: It is important for Manual Steering Override to be functioning and set to proper level to allow user to
disengage AutoSteer manually. Never operate an AutoSteer system without this feature working or set
properly.
Pressure Transducer
This screen is displayed for vehicle profiles that use a pressure transducer on Steering Valve. It allows
user to verify sensor is working and to adjust sensitivity of kick out to match user preferences. These
screens are described in detail in Standard Setup Wizard Steps section of this manual. See “Pressure
Transducer” on page 22 for more information.
Steering Encoder and Flow Switch
Some vehicle profiles use an encoder on steering wheel or a flow switch in steering hydraulic lines to
detect motion at steering wheel. Encoder will send a signal when steering wheel is turned by user. Flow
sensor will close circuit when it detects oil flow through hydraulic line. In either case, there are only two
states, on and off so there is no adjustment required for these sensors. See “Flow Switch and Encoder Auto
Calibrate” on page 24 for more information.

STEERCOMMAND
Manual steering override when using the MDU-G4 as the actuator is different than using a hydraulic
pressure transducer or override switch. The ECU-S1 detects manual steering override using feedback
from the MDU-G4. In this screen the bar graph represents the current tested setting and pressing the –
or + will adjust this bar graph.
After adjusting the manual override setting pressing the start button will turn the steering wheel to the
right and the setting can be tested. Once the setting is correct, pressing the Save Limit button will set the
saved limit to match the tested limit. See “MDU-G4 Auto Calibrate” on page 24 for more information.
MDU ACTUATOR
The Mechanical Drive Unit (MDU) refers to
any mechanical steering option such as
MDU-G4. The MDU Actuator screen
provides the user a way to command the
Mechanical Drive Unit to turn left or right
and confirm the AutoSteer system can
control the device.
Note: Before performing this test, ensure people and objects are clear of the vehicle. When pressing the
Steering Command buttons, the wheels or vehicle will move quickly from side to side. Press the STOP button
to halt the vehicle steering movement.
Note: For the MDUActuator screen, the Steering Command buttons control the direction the Mechanical Drive
Unit (MDU) rotates.
The following are the controls available on the Actuator screen:
• Hard Left – Pressing this button tells the MDU to turn to the left at 100% speed.
• xx% Left – The xx represents the Steering Left Percentage that the slider bar has been set to. Pressing
this button will turn the MDU to the left at xx% speed.
• 0% – The MDU will not rotate.
• xx% Right – The xx represents the Steering Right Percentage that the slider bar has been set to. Pressing

WHEEL ANGLE SENSOR
Wheel Angle Sensor screen shows sensor reading coming from Angle Sensor on vehicle. Wheel Angle
Sensor sends wheel angle position signals to system in order to ensure precise AutoSteering
operations.
Raw Counts – Reading sent from Wheel Angle Sensor. This value should increase/decrease as
steering wheel is turned. If it does not move, there is a problem with Wheel Angle Sensor communication
and this will need to be solved before system can AutoSteer.
Zero Curvature – Button will start Wheel Angle Sensor test procedure to see if calibration information is
still valid.
Zero Curvature
After Wheel Angle Sensor has been calibrated, system should be able to know exactly what angle
steering axle needs to be at in order to drive a straight line. This test is designed to provide a quick
verification that Wheel Angle Sensor calibration is valid. If vehicle stops steering properly, this test can
be run to verify that Wheel Angle Sensor is still working correctly. If Wheel Angle Sensor, its brackets, or
linkage rods have been damaged or altered, this test will be able to show that calibration is no longer
valid.
If this test fails, check Wheel Angle Sensor components for physical damage and that steering axles are
working properly. Recalibrate system and see if that resolves issue.
Use following procedure to use Zero Curvature test.
Press Zero Curvature button to start test.
Find a location where vehicle can be driven in a relatively straight line for 10 seconds at normal
operating speed of vehicle. Verify that all bystanders are away from vehicle.
Begin driving vehicle in a straight line and then press
.
Vehicle should drive in a straight line for about 10 seconds. At the end of the countdown, test will give
one of two following results.
If Zero Curvature test passes, Wheel Angle Sensor is working properly. If test fails there is most likely a
problem with Wheel Angle Sensor. This can occur if Wheel Angle Sensor or linkage has been damaged
since original calibration, improper Wheel Angle Sensor installations, or conditions for test were not
favorable (ex. bumpy ground, bad GPS, etc.). Try running test again. If problem continues, check Wheel
Angle Sensor hardware and recalibrate vehicle. After recalibrating verify system is working properly by
running Zero Curvature test again.
REMOTE SWITCH

GENERAL
The General screen displays the status of
a number of operations. Parameters are
explained below:
• GPS Mode – The current GPS mode the
system is operating in.
• PDOP – (Positional Dilution of
Precision) is a measure of the strength
of the satellites scatter. When the
satellites are close together, their
geometry is not favorable for position
calculations and the PDOP value is
high; when their geometry is favorable
and they are far apart, the PDOP value
is low. Thus a low PDOP value
represents a better GPS positional accuracy.
• Heading – Displays the heading the vehicle is facing or traveling in degrees.
• Height – Shows the Vehicle’s altitude above sea level.
• # of Satellites – Displays the number of satellites being tracked by the system.
• Vehicle Position – Not currently used.
NMEA MESSAGES
The NMEA messages screen displays the
Raw NMEA messages that the OnTrac3
system is receiving form the GPS receiver.
NMEA STATUS
The GPS Status screen displays the status and configuration of the NMEA messages received from the
GPS receiver.

NMEA OUT
Note: This feature configures the ECU-S1 serial port to output roll corrected NMEA messages. Make
sure that you have the correct wiring harness connected to ECU-S1 to route these messages.
Please contact your dealer for further details.
The NMEA Out screen enables user to configure
NMEA 0183 message for output from the system for
use by 3rd party precision agriculture controllers.
There are four options that can be configured in this
screen:
• NMEA-Out Messages – This configures which
NMEA messages are turned on and at what rate
they are sent.
• NMEA-Out Port Configuration – This configures
the serial port settings.
To access the NMEA Out screen, press the NMEA
Out button at the GPS screen.
NMEA-OUT MESSAGES
Note: Refer to your precision agriculture controller’s documentation to determine the correct NMEA
message and Baud rate is required to communicate. An incorrect setting may cause your controller
to malfunction or not work at all.
The NMEA-Out Messages screen allows the user to
configure which messages are sent out and at what
speed.
The system supports the following NMEA message
formats:
• GGA
• VTG
• GLL
• ZDA
• RMC
• XTE
The system supports the following data rates:
• Off
• 0.1 Hz

MESSAGES CONFIGURATION
To change the configuration of any of the NMEA
Message follow the procedure below:
1. Use the Gray Up/Down Arrow buttons or directly
select the NMEA Message that is to be modified.
2. Press the Edit button.
3. Using the Gray Up/Down Arrow buttons or directly
select the desired data rate.
4. For GGA Messages only, an additional setting
needs to be set. One of the values of the GGA
message is the GPS Quality value. The GPS Quality
tells 3rd party devices the correction source (SPS,
DGPS, or RTK) that was used to calculate the NMEA
position.
Some 3rd party devices require that this value be set
to DGPS (2) in order to be used. Other 3rd party
devices require a RTK Fixed (4) position to be used.
The system can be configured to send out two
versions of the GGA Message. They are:
• Current – The GGA Message sends the GPS
Status value based on the actual correction source that calculated it. 3rd Party devices will receive a
value of 1, 2, 4, or 5 depending on what the true correction source is.
• Legacy – The GGA Message sends the GPS Status value as 1 or 2 only. Even if the position is calculated
by RTK, the GPS Status will be sent as 2.
Refer to your 3rd party device to determine what versions should be sent. In most cases the Current
Version should be safe to send. The Legacy Version is only used on very old 3rd party devices that were
not capable of using RTK generated data.
This table shows what GPS Quality value is sent out in the GGA message when the system is in the
different accuracy modes.

user to configure the baud rate of the serial port.
The system supports the following Baud Rates:
• 4800
• 9600
• 19200
• 38400
• 57600
• 115200
PORT CONFIGURATION
Note: Changing the Baud Rate on the NMEA Out screen also changes the Baud Rate for the
External Radio input. Port A can be used simultaneously for the External Radio In and NMEA Out,
however both functions must use the same Baud Rate.
To change the Port Configuration, follow the
procedure below:
1. Press the Change Baud Rate button.
2. If adjusting Port A, a Warning message will
appear. Press the Green Check button to accept it or
the Red X button to cancel.
